Times have changed and continuity is far more important today than it was in the past. If Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was writing Sherlock today he would have paid far more attention to small continuity details and have included arcs connecting the various novels.
Or maybe he realized like most smart people that the readers are more interested in Holmes doing detecting and having interesting adventures than useless continuity. More continuity certainly wasn't going to turn the Blanched Soldier or the Veiled Lodger into better stories.
Would more continuity have turned them into worse stories?
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
